WONDER 101: Unleash your Creative Monster
Unleash your inner creative monster spirit. Give yourself the excuse to get lost, take chances, experiment, and explore during this session for the novice to the professional. Engaging in the structured activities will bring out the inner child and may give you a refreshing look at creative problem-solving, or you'll learn some new skills using techniques learned in sketching, collage, and other hand crafts. As most of the workshops at Camp Wonder Wander encourage participation in all activities, the group lives together while we create, critique, cook, clean and commune around the site & campfire. Enjoy a semester-long study compressed into one week where you will have the chance to indulge in handcraft exercises, explore area thrift stores to scavenge for subject material, engage in photo walkabouts, and enjoy nature, comraderie, and sharing stories. Shorter sessions will be just as impactful but we may not have time to venture off-site you'll be able to take your new exploring skills on those scavenger hunts in your backyard.
